(the good one).

This charming animation constitutes a reasonably damning argument to the contrary.

The BSG one is brilliant. Really nice looking at the series through the lens of absurd Japanese RPG storylines.

Pretty great, all of them.

If you'd like to play an actual (and amazing) game in this vein, then Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden awaits.

Dang, I was hoping for a pen and paper Jersey Shore RPG.

Damn, the BSG music is even good in 8-bit.

Not pen and paper, but I've heard rumours there are Jersey Shore LARPers, not unlike those folks that used to play vampires about town and those other guys that dress in armour and fight with padded swords in the park. They hang out at gyms and tanning salons and techno nightclubs, dressed in tight clothes and with lots of "product" in their hair, hoping to avoid "grenades" and "drama" which lose points, and gain points by "hooking up" and "smooshing".

I really like how they chose the final Cylons. TOTALLY PLANNED!

The Mode 7esque Game of Thrones intro is brilliant.

Ah, Jersey Shore.

Interesting fact. The new season of Beavis and Butthead? Whenever they're watching Jersey shore, Butthead gains like 130 IQ points.

ONSCREEN: Snooki shows the chalkboard tree diagram she's cooked up showing which person has "swapped spit" with each other person.
BUTTHEAD: "Ya know if she worked this chart back long enough, we could find out where herpes began."

I loved the "effects budget" meter. If you listened to Moore's episode commentary, he was always complaining about the effects costs and telling you what shot would have been there if he had more money for that episode.

When my girlfriend is watching BSG, I always refer to it as "conference rooms in space". I'm glad someone else sees that, too.

@corpronymus

i think part of my aversion to barkley gaiden is that i met cboyardee at a thing one time and he was kind of creepy and offputting

Battlestar Galactica (the good one).

I like it. Bold, yet ambiguous.

That's not hard to believe. I wouldn't want to meet any of my Troll Heroes in life, and I already have enough conversations that basically start with, "So, there are some dumb/weird/irritating people on the Internet." The game is pretty funny, though.

i do not understand the concept of 'troll heroes'

i tried to play the game but it was after i met him in passing so it came off as weirdly angry and resentful

also his anne frank holocaust game thing is :\
